Fluid around my heart is in the upper left side of my neck, and it comes and goes
Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 1 year ago.


Thanks for the information. Fluid around heart called Pericardial effusion is an alarming sign, and not to be neglected. It needs strict medical supervision and follow-up, and no home remedies can replace the medical treatment.

But few remedies can aid, I can suggest few.

Remember, all the home remedies should be followed after consulting your cardiologist, as he might have already given you drugs, that can accelerate or counteract the action of them when you take few things I mention below.

Salt restriction can help decrease water retention

Eat Garlic, add it to your food

Diuretic foods can be eaten, but be careful as they can interact with diuretics if you are taken them already. the list of diuretic foods are,

  • Cranberries
  • Grapes
  • Watermelon
  • Leafy greens
  • Lemon
  • Pineapple
  • Juniper Berries
  • Tomatoes
  • Pumpkin
  • Asparagus
  • Artichokes
  • Beets
  • Onion
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Leeks
  • Carrots
  • Cucumber
  • Lettuce
  • Watercress
  • Celery
  • Eggplant

Dandelion Leaves Tea is advised sometimes. Barley water is taken at times to prevent water retension.

Hope I helped with required information.
